2020 won’t let up. Shortly after beloved comedy icon Rick Moranis, stepped out of retirement for a cute team up with Ryan Reynolds, he’s been sucker-punched near Central Park. Yesterday, someone struck the Honey, I Shrunk The Kids star in the head, knocking him to the ground. The 67-year-old actor then escorted himself to the hospital before reporting the incident to the police.
NBC reports the NYPD has shared footage of a suspect.
Here’s how Twitter is reacting to all this news.
RICK MORANIS DID NOT SHRINK THE KIDS, BLOW UP THE KID, SHRINK HIMSELF, TURN INTO A DOG, COACH THE LITTLE GIANTS, OR WEAR THAT BIG ASS HELMET TO BE DISRESPECTED LIKE THIS. pic.twitter.com/J5JPhQs887— James III, the black friend™️ (@James3rdComedy) October 2, 2020

The Matrix is glitching so bad right now that Rick Moranis was randomly attacked in New York City a few blocks from the Ghostbusters apartment building and it’s maybe the 6th craziest news story of the last 24 hours. https://t.co/YuSYDo9Txg— Matt Singer (@mattsinger) October 2, 2020
